gas mileage
By Chuck Rinks(Owner), Mar. 16, 2012
The Yamaha RSTD is a great bike. smooth to ride, lots of power to get up and go. I've get anywhere from 38-43 mpg, depending on how i'm riding.
I bought my 2008 RSTD new in 2010. I've put over 12000 miles since then, and I've got no complaints. Read Full Review
